Returning Students: 2020-2021

2020-2021 Returning Student Enrollment

Beginning Monday, April 27, 2020, parents/guardians will be able to re-enroll their students for the 2020-2021 school year.

Parents/Guardians will need to re-enroll their students online using their Parent Portal account. If you do not remember your username/password, you can click on the forgot password link to have a password reset link emailed to you or your school secretary can assist any Parent or Guardian that needs help setting up an account. Online re-enrollment is required for ALL students to return to school for the 2020-2021 school year. When you are logged into your Parent Portal account, you will find the 20-21 Enrollment link towards the bottom of the navigation pane. Please note that you cannot use the mobile app to fill out the enrollment form. See our Parent Portal Quick Start Guide for for a visual.

In-District Transfers

If you are interested in transferring your student to another school within our district, please submit an online transfer request form.

ASB Innovation Academy

If you are interested in having your current 4-6 grade student attend the new ASB Innovation Academy, you will need to complete the 20-21 Enrollment through your Parent Portal and answer the yes/no question.  Students who have selected “yes” will be entered into a lottery to fill the open seats in grades 5-7 for this school.  When filling out the 20-21 Enrollment form, it is very important that you confirm your email address is correct, as that is how important information regarding the lottery will be communicated to you.

***IMPORTANT NOTE*** If your student belongs to the “core” group of students already planning on attending ASB Innovation Academy, you will still need to complete the 20-21 Enrollment form by May 11, 2020 to confirm your student’s seat.

Proof of Residency:

Proof of residency will not be required for all families this year. In an effort to help streamline the proof of residency process for families, we are now running all student addresses through a public information database (Clear/BATCH System) for residency verification. If another address is identified using the Clear/BATCH System, the parent/guardian will be notified to provide additional information by completing the form below:
WPSD1 Proof of Residency Form WPSD1 Proof of Residency Form (Spanish Version)
For those families who do not have additional addresses identified using the Clear/BATCH System, they will not need to provide additional proof of residency documents to the district, unless their address changes.

All children in the United States are entitled to equal access to a basic public elementary and secondary education regardless of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, citizenship, immigration status, or the status of their parents/guardians. School districts that either prohibit or discourage, or maintain policies that have the effect of prohibiting or discouraging, children from enrolling in schools because they or their parents/guardians are not United States citizens or are undocumented may be in violation of Federal law.

A school district may not ask about your or your child’s citizenship or immigration status to establish residency within the district, nor may a school district deny a homeless child (including a homeless child who is undocumented) enrollment because he or she cannot provide the required documents to establish residency.

IMPORTANT: Williston Public School District # 1 reserves the right to evaluate the evidence presented, and simply presenting the elements listed in the procedure does not guarantee enrollment.
